I want to respond to everyone
As a person who has been in the entertainment business for years and has - on more than occasion - auditioned - I can tell you that Simon's comments are not that bad. Real producers, directors and casting people are more horrible than Simon Cowell - trust me. If these people really want a career in the entertainment business - they better get used too it. Because - trust me - this will not be the first time someone like Cowell - will be telling them they suck or they need to loose 10 pounds.

Anyway, I would like to see Clay Aiken win. This guy - truly just blows me away. I was wondering the same as Randy - where does that voice come from. This guy is truly amazing and extremely gifted.

Can anyone tell me what happened to Chip Days? (The black guy with the braided hair) He was in trouble with the law?
